|… went over the mountain, to see what he could see.|
And what d’you think he saw?
Hmm. So this is the hobbit version of "The Bear Went Over the Mountain"! =)
So the sun is out--great! They must be in Hollin, then. The weather was pretty nasty, as I recall, until they arrived there.
Someone should explain to Bill that No. 3 is the Gamgees' address! Wonder if a pony would be at all capable of understanding that concept, though?
Author Reply: You are correct! We have finally reached Hollin. Since this was about a fortnight on the way, there is not very much left before Caradhras and the door to Moria. Yikes.
I am not sure that Bill would comprehend addresses. I imagine he must treat places rather like the way he names people; descriptive, rather. So No. 3 Bag End might be where he's accustomed to stopping, someday, and where he's always assured a carrot will be waiting for him. Thus, "the carrot smial" or some such.

|Your descriptions are amazing, especially the one of the sunrise. |
Author Reply: Thank you! I must give some credit to Thornton Burgess, the nature writer, for his characterisations of nature. We really enjoyed reading his books aloud together when the wee hobbits were younger.

|How Pippin's youth and resilience must have cheered the Fellowship in their way, including dear Bill.|
Author Reply: I know they certainly cheer me!
Speaking of Pippin of movie fame, I had the opportunity of seeing Billy Boyd at Comic Con recently. I wish I'd got up the nerve to queue up and ask him a question, but it was a completely enjoyable occasion just being one of the crowd. What a character!

|It sounds as annoying as 99 bottles of beer on the wall, this version of the bear went over the mountain. But the view sounds spectacular!|
Author Reply: Probably!
I couldn't quite decide what creature would be featured in the song, so I deliberately left out the "bear" part. Whew. What do you think it might have been?
And now I want Pippin to sing a 99 pints of beer at the Green Dragon song... or maybe at the Golden Perch. Intriguing to contemplate. How am I going to get *that* out of my head?
Hurrah, I see you've added to Enter the Ranger. Will hope to steal some time in the morning to read it. I can hardly keep my eyes open at the moment.
